Our wonderful Electrical Supervisor, David Burnett, has used his PPM Volunteering Day to carry out essential electrical testing at Maryport Inshore Rescue. This ensures valuable donations to the charity can be used to concentrate on the incredible work they do saving local lives.
Maryport Inshore Rescue is an independent Lifeboat and Swift Water rescue organisation. Their crew of 20 volunteers, ranging from operational members of crew, shore based/launch crews and Swift /flood rescue trained personal are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They work alongside all other emergency services in our region including the Coastguard, Police, Fire, Ambulance and Mountain Rescue offering lifesaving capability not only at sea, but on inland waterways and more.
One of our PPM Supervisors from our Workington Depot, Mike Messenger, has been heavily involved and devoted to the charity for many years as a volunteer crew member and fundraiser and so we are always keen to help with their amazing work. As the charity relies on generous donations from the public and corporate sponsors to be able to run the rescue organisation, any money they can save is beneficial and can be used towards the main job of saving local lives. This is why we were delighted that our Electrical Supervisor chose to use his PPM Volunteering Day to carry out essential 5 year periodic electrical testing at the Maryport Rescue station.
Mike Messenger said: “All the team at Maryport Inshore Rescue would like to thank PPM Ltd for their kind offer of Dave Burnett’s volunteer time to carry out the electrical tests, it is very much appreciate. The works being done through the PPM Ltd.’s volunteer scheme have saved out organisation over £500 which is fantastic. Many thanks once again”
PPM offer all of our team the opportunity to use their fantastic skills and/or time to help a charity of their choice for one day each year.
